Despite a weak box office opening, the Weinstein Company said that they have no plans to yank Nine from theaters. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie will play in 1,412 screens in the United States this coming weekend, the same number as the previous weekend.
David Glasser, an operations exec for the Weinstein Company told Reuters yesterday, "At this moment in time there has been no plan between us nor the theater chains that we deal with to cut any theaters. We are going to hold our theaters as planned. The movie is working."
Nine cost an estimated $64 million to produce, but despite the hype and five Golden Globe noms, its gross domestic earnings are only hovering around $7.9 million. What went wrong?
